Bow Ties are Still Cool

5:00 AM

My dear friend sent me some of those adorable bow tie paper from Chic Tags. I thought it was perfect for Teddy since he always is wearing a bow tie or neck tie! I've been saving it for something special.

When the Open Book collection arrived on my door step, I wanted to create with it right away. I love the touches of gold! I was inspired to use bits of that combined with the My Mind's Eye Market Street collection. I can't get enough gold! It's been trendy for awhile, but I hope it sticks around for quite some time.

I love the look of the Open Book vellum pieces! I think I might need at least 15 more packs. You know, just in case. I was happy to mix and match it with a WRMK journaling card (the cut out flower at the bottom). It's nice to use up some stash!

 Have you used the Open Book collection yet? Are you mixing and matching it, or using it alone? I'll be back on Monday with a layout I made using just Open Book! Have a wonderful day :)
